Fluorescent dye boosts metamaterial performance
Physicists in the US have overcome a major problem that has plagued the designers of "invisibility cloaks" by creating the first negative-index metamaterial (NIM) with a built-in amplifier. It compensates for the strong absorption of light that occurs in optical NIMs, severely limiting their practical use.
